French Onion Soup A La My Dutch-German Dave

, , ,

Soooo… It’s been yet another pitifully gray and rainy week for us. It’s typical during this time of year in Maine, and for some things (like for the grass and forsythia and pretty spring daffodils) it’s good, but for other things (like walking outside without getting wet) it’s bad. Man, I’m jonesin’ to see the sun for at least a few […]

My Thai Vegan Cafe Serves up My Fav Vegan Food in Boston!

, ,

You know what’s the BEST? Going to a restaurant where everything on the menu is VEGAN! Since it’s not a common occurrence for us, though – to have a menu set on our table that’s fully vegan-dedicated, it can take some getting used to. It’s just so ingrained in us to ask our waiter or […]

Tempeh Curry with Broccoli and Mushrooms

, ,

I really enjoy making curry dishes for my family, because – to me – they’re one of the easiest yet most flavorful and complete meals to whip up. The whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to prepare (although, if time permits, I recommend letting your curry simmer for a bit to allow the spices to deepen and get even tastier!) This combination […]

Are You Clever or are You Wise?

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Jalaluddin Rumi Ever since he was a baby, change just hasn’t been a big deal for my son. On the day Dave and I decided Owen should stop using a bottle, we put a cup in his […]

Vegan Quiche (for our exactly zero eggs Easter)

, , ,

It’s decided! Easter brunch at our house will include Quiche and Bloody Marys!! (Bloody Marys for me and Dave, that is; Owen will have an orange juice & vanilla seltzer… shaken, not stirred.) Followed by an afternoon of tye-dyeing t-shirts instead of coloring eggs, because… you know… eggs are zero percent vegan. But, back to the […]

DIY Feeders for Our Bird Friends (because that suet stuff ain't vegan)

A lot of people offer suet to the birds that flap in and out of their yards throughout the year. We were among those people… that is, until I figured out that suet quite literally means beef fat. Although suet cakes are hung during all seasons (including spring, WHICH – by the way – HAS FINALLY MADE ITS WAY TO MAINE!), […]

Macaroni & Milk (It's just like mac-n-cheese... without the cheese)

, , ,

OK, so today I give you… dun da da… MACARONI & MILK! Yup, this is actually a thing at my house. We cook elbow macaroni, put it in a cereal-type bowl, add unsweetened almond milk on top, stir in vegan butter, salt it, then pop it in the microwave until it’s hot (or, you can do this […]
